and legacy of dr. martin luther king just before -- just as he did before his first inauguration. >> it's a symbol of how our democracy works and how we peacefully transfer power. but it should also be an affirmation that we're all in this together. >> not far away, the vice president and a bunch of bidens helped to pack supply kits for members of the u.s. military. across the country, an estimated quarter million people did something to help someone else. there were clothing drives in manhattan, volunteers added a little life to the walls of a senior center, and as required by the constitution, president obama will take the oath at the white house tomorrow. then again monday in a grand ceremony at the capitol. >>> and you can experience the inauguration with us right here on nbc bay area on line and on air. on the web we will streamline video, and we will have photo galleries, as well. our political analyst, larry gerston, will be at the inauguration. he's in d.c. already. we'll have live reports starting tomorrow morning on "today in the bay." >>> hundreds of people in the bay area sp

'll come through the rotunda, walk by that bust of dr. martin luther king, jr., and then into statuary hall for a tradition that's the most exclusive lunch you can imagine. all of the nation's leaders, the president, the vice president, congressional leaders, supreme court justices, their spouses, they will all gather for a lunch to put politics aside for at least a brief moment. >> thank you very much, jan. >>> as we watch the president's motorcade approaching the capitol, let me give you a little bit of an advanced look on what you're seeing as the inauguration ceremonies proceed. as we mentioned, senator charles schumer of new york will be the master of ceremonies. he will have a short speech and then he will be introducing myrlie evers-williams, a former chair of the naacp and the widow of medgar evers. the naacp field secretary who was gunned down in 1963. one of the great heroes of the civil rights movement. myrlie evers-williams will be giving the invocation at the beginning of the ceremonies and then we will see justice sonia sotomayor who is one of the newer associate justices on t
